Standing up: Real stories of upstanding: What it takes; why it’s crucial—and the role we all play in making change, featuring Dr. Keren R. McGinity, Hannah Dreyfus, Dr. Alissa Ackerman, Dr. Guila Benchimol, and Bonnie Goldberg, LICSW, LCSW, LMSW.

  • What happens when women* speak about sexuaI harm?
  • What can we do to support them?
  • How can our communities grow to support those who call out bad behavior?
  • How can we—as community members—help our institutions respond well when individuals bring forward claims they don’t want to hear?

Join us in conversation with three powerful speakers—Dr. Keren McGinity, Dr. Alissa Ackerman, and Hannah Dreyfus, facilitated by Dr. Guila Benchimol—who will share their personal experiences and perspectives on upstanding and how it reflects their faith and Jewish values, and how it has personally impacted their lives. They will be joined by Bonnie Goldberg of JCADA, a trauma-informed clinician who will offer her expert framing and offer support should anyone need it during the course of our conversation.

Join us for this critical communal conversation in partnership with the SRE Network and The Covenant Foundation. This is important learning. We are grateful to be doing it together with you.

This gathering will raise issues of gender-based violence and harm. We want to hold our community as best we can, please care for yourself as you need to while we address these complicated topics.

As always, our learning is incomplete without you. Please invite someone you think might want to be with us, too.

This gathering is made possible in part by funds granted by the SRE Network, The Covenant Foundation, The Aviv Foundation. The statements made and the views expressed, however, are solely of SVIVAH.

This gathering welcomes women* 12+ and learners of all backgrounds.
